Couple build fairy tale castle in Pittsburgh

SCAdians Char Branstetter and Cara McCandless longed to live their dream of owning a real castle, so they built one — in Pittsburgh! Patterned after Bodiam castle near Hastings in southern England, the structure includes wooden framing with a stone veneer.

When they decided to build the castle, Branstetter and McCandless vowed to strive for historical accuracy in design and materials whenever possible. View their construction album and floor plan online.
